CAPE Charter School
Archive-It Partner Since: Oct, 2010
Organization Type: K-12 Program Schools
CAPE is a charter school located in Camarillo, California. We focus on an open philosophy that helps foster global, independent, creative thinkers who feel confident in themselves, are willing to take risks, and work cooperatively. We do this by focusing on hands-on education; enabling pupils to become self-motivated, competent, and life-long learners, equipped for the challenges of the 21st Century. We teach Kindergarten through Eighth grade and our Archive-It group is made up of a few dedicated Eighth grade students.
We started this process with most of the class listening in on our first teleconference. The students that were interested talked with our teacher, Mrs. Kavon, and joined the group. We met once a week and decided on what topics we wanted to focus on. We have all enjoyed this opportunity to archive our current lives for future generations of teenagers like us.
